I ended up downloading and installing ubuntu-12.10-desktop-amd64.iso and wubi.exe from http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/12.10/, which helped because, although I can't get it to boot up all the way, I can get a root prompt. and with that I was able to run lilo on both sda1 and sda4, and those are both now bootable.
however, I still can't get wifi to work. for some reason, the DHCP negotiation just isn't working. that's on both distros. pisser.
